Training and Development

We provide a full induction and training programme when you join us helping you to be the best you can. In addition to regular 1-2-1s and annual appraisals, we’ll help you develop and progress your career through other initiatives such as secondments and job shadowing.

If it's a formal qualification you are looking to achieve we can help here as well with a scheme which will support you both financially and with time off to study as long as its relevant to your role.
All our colleagues have unlimited access to a full suite of e-learning modules to support not only the development of organisational information, knowledge and skills but also your individual personal development.


It is our job to make sure our services are fully inclusive for our community and to do that we need to ensure we have a diverse workforce who with a mix of ideas and experience. We are committed to a policy of equality of opportunity and work to ensure that no one receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of a protected characteristic or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which are not justified in terms of the job to be done.

This applies to all aspects of the Council’s employment practices including recruitment, disciplinary and grievance procedures, working terms and conditions including remuneration, redundancy, development appraisal, training for job and career development.
In order to ensure our policy is carried out in practice, we monitor our recruitment process. This means noting personal information about all applicants.

Information we ask you to give will be kept confidentially to be used for monitoring purposes only. The information will not be used against you in any way and will not be made available to the selection panel during the shortlisting process.
